Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority

One of the most influential organisations near Pool is expanding. The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority is to take over management of the whole of the 268-mile Pennine Way, from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders, in a bid to assure the future of the national trail.

The authority has secured a £350,000 annual grant from Natural England, current managers of the 15 national trails in England and Wales, to maintain and improve both the walking route and the 205-mile Pennine Bridleway, which runs from Derbyshire to Cumbria.

The Mayor’s Buttercross Stall- Volunteers Needed

Dear All

The Mayor’s Buttercross Stall takes place a week tomorrow and we are eagerly looking for any willing volunteers.

Otley Action is one of the recipient mayoral charities this year and we have been asked to find any willing helpers to man the stall between 1012 noon on the day.  In addition, any donations of bric-a-brac (but not books) would be most welcome.

If you are available, would you please let me know.


Many thanks.
